Abstract

The Discetech project, started in 1996 in Northern Italy, aims at experimenting the introduction of new technologies within the teaching-learning activities of high school classrooms. Since 1998, a similar project, Bimbotech, has been developed for initial classrooms (from 4 to 10 years old children). Several hundreds of experiences involving several thousands of pupils have been carried on by the teachers, previously instructed and assisted by the project's staff. This paper briefly introduces a case study, one of the most interesting Bimbotech experiments analyzing the organization, the phases, the results and the learned lessons. The last section wants to suggest a few useful remarks upon mutual connection between multimedia and knowledge.
